What is full-body resistance training?
Whether using equipment or just your own body weight, P.volve uses full body resistance training to deeply activate and strengthen your muscles. Common full body resistance training moves in a P.volve workout include the p.sit, step back and standing abs.
How long should a full-body resistance workout be?
P.volve's full body resistance workouts range anywhere from 15 minutes to 55 minutes, depending on the platform and class type. Here, we'll show you three moves that could be tacked onto another workout for an added burn or done separately for a quick, full body boost.
The p.3 trainer
If you've ever used the p.3 trainer, you know how much variety it can add to your routine. Use it standing for leg reaches, on all fours to target the glutes or lying down for core work. No matter how you use it, every move with this precise tool will offer the full-body resistance that leads to long lasting results.
See below for Maeve's new resistance exercises with the p.3, or head over to Instagram to watch full videos of each.
Resistance Exercise 1: Single Leg Reaches
This resistance based exercise targets the thighs, core and arms, leading to a total-body burn. Adding the weighted ball to the mix will ensure you get the greatest workout possible.
- Start lying on the mat with arms overhead and legs in tabletop position,
- Reach arms back towards your ears as you stretch your attached leg down long.
- Complete rep by squeezing arms and leg back up to starting position. Repeat 8 times on both sides.
Resistance Exercise 2: Plank Shifts
This resistance based plank requires full-body engagement. Keeping your core engaged through every rep will ensure you get the greatest workout possible.
- Start in a plank position with the p.3 handle around your wrist.
- Shift weight up and over 1-2 inches in front of you.
- Squeeze core and arms as you return to starting position. Repeat 8 times on both sides.
Resistance Exercise 3: Bicep Load & Reach
This resistance based exercise focuses on finding length through your body for complete upper and lower body activation. For best results, keep your standing leg firmly planted into the ground.
- Start with a deep step back with your attached leg.
- Hinge at your hips as you complete a bicep curl.
- Squeeze back up to starting position. Repeat 8 times on both sides.
